BCG facilitated the AAMI/FDA Interoperability Summit, “From Interoperability to Integration In and Around Medical Devices – Getting Patient Safety Right” on October 2-3, 2012 in Herndon, VA.

This intensive, two-day event delved into the complex issues around interoperability and patient safety.  Participants included leaders from the IT and medical device industries, regulatory bodies, professional associations, clinicians, subject experts, patient safety officers, researchers, and others.  The goal was  to identify, discuss, and formulate strategic initiatives and priorities focused on getting patient safety right.

BCG also facilitated a Workshop in conjunction with AAMI/FDA titled “The Risks, Challenges and Opportunities of Wireless Technology Systems in Healthcare." This invitation only summit was held immediately following the Interoperability Summit, October 4-5, 2012, Herndon, VA.
